Experience the Ahr Valley without barriers
The health resort of Bad Neuenahr-Ahrweiler, rich in tradition and surrounded by steep vineyards, is always one of the most popular starting points for excursions in red wine country. One reason for this is the particularly beautiful landscape, where the Ahr meanders through the gently rolling hills of the Rheinish State Mountains.
Even when booking disabled accessible accommodation, guests have a wide selection because many holiday homes and hotels have adapted to the special needs of their guests with different price categories and priorities. Sunken kerbs facilitate crossing the street while strolling through the spa town. This way you can focus on enjoying and exploring the winding streets and spaciously laid-out spa complex.
There are no stairs in the Altenahr Tourist Information office and the door opens automatically. Wheelchair users can use a ramp on the side entrance of the Bad Neuenahr Tourist Information office, which does have stairs.
For guests with limited mobility, the fun starts as soon as you arrive. The low-floor trains of the Ahr Valley Railway, which you can use to reach other lovely towns in the Ahr Valley, make boarding and disembarking easy, with no steps or ledges on the platform edge to overcome.
Limitless wine experiences
In the area around Bad Neuenahr, it's all about wine. In Mayschoss, the oldest winegrowers' cooperative in the world, disabled accessible wine cellar tours are available, in which you can learn a lot about the secrets of the popular red wine from the Ahr Valley. Wheelchair users can reach the wine cellar by ramps and the tour is interpreted in sign language for deaf visitors.
Visit to the Römervilla Museum
Besides good wine, there is a significant archaeological find to be admired in Bad Neuenahr. The Römervilla is a Roman manor house from the 1st century. Due to the well-preserved masonry, walls are window-high and visitors can get an idea of the domestic lifestyle of the Romans.
Please note that the Römervilla is only partially wheelchair accessible. There are some individual steps that cannot be bypassed with ramps due to the space available. In order to ensure the preservation of the Roman artefacts, the exhibit is not heated. In addition, the peak season begins mid-March and ends mid-November. You can get the exact dates from the Römervilla website.
Out and about without limitations in Bad Neuenahr
The picturesque spa gardens and the city centre of Bad Neuenahr lend themselves especially well to a nice stroll. The kerbs in the city centre are sunken and make getting around easy. Marvel at the Art Nouveau buildings of the historical thermal bath houses and the casino or treat yourself to a moment of quiet in the spa gardens with a view of the Ahr while on your walk.
